We bring thoughtful, inclusive, and professional outdoor summer Shakespeare to the Twin Cities community. We engage our community by creating a public gathering space centered around a dynamic, imaginative, and entertaining live performance, at no charge to our audience. Our belief that art and culture should be accessible to all drives us to create theater experiences that promote a robust exchange of ideas and provide an extraordinary examination of the human condition.
We engage Minneapolis through a summer tradition of outdoor Shakespeare with highly trained classical actors and quality production values - at no cost. By taking Shakespeare out of a formal theater, we connect with audiences who cannot afford theater tickets and/or might feel intimidated or excluded by the institution. Through an emphasis on storytelling and text with a diverse cast, we connect new audiences to the universality of Shakespeare.

A staple of the Twin Cities theater community, she has worked for Park Square Theater, The History Theater, Pillsbury House Theater, The Guthrie Theater, and many others in the Twin Cities and around the country.

Twelfth Night is a hilarious and heartbreaking tale of unrequited love and mistaken identity that all starts with a shipwreck, a pair of twins, and a madcap cast of characters. Mayhem inevitably ensues in Shakespeare's romantic comedy about the power of loss and love.
Richard III is a warning about the dangers of ambition in charismatic and calculating rulers. Shakespeare's masterful final play in the War of the Roses cycle is filled with murder, manipulation, and political mayhem. Though Elizabethan in its nature, the themes echo in our world today.
